Song a Day November: Red Right Hand

This came over the car sound system today and I got to thinking how much I love Nick Cave. I wasn't around in Australia in his hey day in the 90's, but I love his deep voice and meaningful lyrics. There are so many songs to choose from, but I've picked this, mainly as it's been used to promote South Australia and it's nice and gritty. His latest album is a bit of a revelation too, made after the death of his teenage son. It's stark and haunting and a joy to listen to.

And now that I've done the song for the day I would get on with cleaning the house, but as we have no hot water at the moment, things like mopping the floors can't be done. What a bummer. 

Also found a cover by the Arctic Monkeys, for which, as covers go, is not too bad at all.

Hi Pand,

I prefer Nick Cave's version.
